Minn Kota riptide ST green ready light will not turn on. It started flickering and will not turn on now. Pressed the battery test button and it shows that the batteries are fully charged. HELP!!!


Does the unit work without the auto pilot? Sounds like the auto pilot or the reciever is not functioning correctly.
Check and make sure the unit is grounded properly, you may need to run a test ground wire from the battery to the motor istelf to check this.
This is simple to do and takes 15 minutes. Starting in the battery compartment feed cable into the split-loom and continue feeding until reaching the control panel. Pull an extra 5 foot of cable and open dry hatch in rear by motor feed cable around and out to motor connections., Good time to check any circuit breakers
Try cycling the auto pilot though the modes.
there are 3 modes
to cycle through each mode
hold down the + and - key for 2 seconds
this cycles you to the next mode. Last but not least, try turning the unit on and spinning the prop by hand to see if it takes off, the motor migt be bound up slightly or have a bad spot on the brushes.

Minn kota riptide 55 bow mount with foot control and auto pilot. problem is prop doesn't seem to spin as fast so top speed is about half to two thirds of what it was when new. unit is about 5yrs old.just...


Sounds as if the motor has either bearings going bad and/or water has gotten in the housing washed the lubricants out. Motors do wear out eventually. I'm not sure if the brushes are replacible. Have you checked for any constrictions like fishing line? And also the contacts on the controller could have minor corrosion meaning take it apart if possible and clean with steel wool or a dremel.

Prop will not engage just beeps


is it 12 or 24 Volt system and check to see if there is a com switch that has to be turned on and there should be a click (switch) wich activates and allows the prop to turn. and are you using a foot pedal or a wireless remote?
